Pregnancy Drugstore Staples

Relief from pregnancy woes is seldom farther than a drugstore away. We've gathered a drugstore shopping list so you can ease your aches and pains while keeping your baby safe.
Pain pills Acetaminophen

Acetaminophen relieves headaches and other minor aches and pains. Get rid of aspirin and put Tylenol (acetaminophen) in its place. Aspirin can cross the placental membrane, and in large doses it can possibly cause heart problems for your baby. Avoid naproxen sodium and ibuprofen as well. Those pain relievers -- if they're taken in large doses -- can also be dangerous for the fetus.
